You can get there by car although we recommend to park in the surroundings of the centre of Marbella, specially in summer, during high season it’s a lot harder to find a parking spot near the museum, but we can go for a pleasant walk and visit the old quarter on the way if we park outside Marbella’s urban core.
Those who prefer to go by bus must catch the L-3 line, that leaves from the Marbella bus station, the bus stop where to get off is located at a very short distance from the Bonsai Museum.
This museum offers several services and activities, such as guided visits, a shop and easy access for the disabled.
